Hello. I'm use lvm 2.02.106
  --- Volume group ---
  VG Name               vg5
  System ID
  Format                lvm2

  Metadata Sequence No  95
  VG Access             read/write
  VG Status             resizable
  MAX LV                10000
  Cur LV                0
  Open LV               0
  Max PV                0
  Cur PV                1

  VG Size               449.70 GiB

  Total PE              115124

  Free  PE / Size       115124 / 449.70 GiB

Why i can't create thin pool with size of near 449 Gb? Command like
lvcreate -L 445G --poolmetadatasize 620M --type thin-pool --thinpool
tp5 vg5 success
but if i increase size to 447Gb i'm failing
lvcreate -L 447G --poolmetadatasize 620M --type thin-pool --thinpool tp5 vg5

Increasing pool metadata size does not helps.
